Re: de Negoce offer

I am not saying St helena is junk. I'm saying that 31% extra juice from St Helena is a lower quality than the Oakville juice. Mondavi Oakville certainly needs higher than 69% of the juice from Oakville to satisfy Oakville AVA, right? And it's only selling for $35 in costco, which I don't even think...

Re: de Negoce offer

To be fair, we have no idea if this is CH blended wine. Or Mondavi. He specifically said in a previous offering when he purchased excess juice worth X and blended it with other stuff. He doesn't say that here. Also St Helana cab is not junk. https://www.google.com/search?q=st+helena+cabernet&rlz=1C...

Not sure what your preferences are, but it's a gutsy to jump from grocery store to Musar. More than happy to be an enabler, though! I'd recommend an older vintage--say '99 if you can find it. Musar, even their whites, tend to do better with quite a bit of age. So, if a more recent vintage is more c...
